Welcome to the Partnership: SOCKSWEAR GmbH

We are pleased to welcome SOCKSWEAR GmbH to the Textiles Partnership.

SOCKSWEAR employs around 30 people at its site in Eisenberg in the Pfalz region and has specialised over many years in wholesale and retail in the hosiery and underwear sector. Its active customer base includes specialist retailers, department stores, chain stores, consumer and drug stores, discounters, supermarkets, chain stores, verticals, fashion chains and DIY stores in Germany and other European countries.

Seit 2009 hält SOCKSWEAR seine Mitgliedschaft bei der BSCI und arbeitet auch ausschließlich mit entsprechend auditierten Herstellungsbetrieben zusammen. Weitere bestehende Zertifizierungen des Unternehmens sind nach Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Organic Content Standard (OCS), Global Recycled Standard (GRS) sowie OEKO-TEX Standard 100 und seit 2020 als staatliches Siegel auch der Grüne Knopf. Zudem hat sich SOCKSWEAR der von Greenpeace ins Leben gerufenen „Detox – Road To Zero“ Umwelt-Kampagne angeschlossen.

The trusting and long-term cooperation with experienced producers and their suppliers in the supply chain is particularly important to SOCKSWEAR.
The company strives for continuous positive development in terms of quality, processing and the associated environmental and social compatibility of its products.

Managing Director Harald Wiese describes the motivation for participating in the Textiles Partnership as follows: "We hope to actively exchange knowledge and experience with the Partnership and its members. In this way, we aim to continuously improve our actions throughout the entire manufacturing chain and make them more sustainable."
